Hardy and tough, yet with an airy weeping habit that looks so delicate!

So colorful it stands out even in deep shade!
Often difficult to locate and always in demand, Japanese Silver-Painted Fern is a miniature treasure for the partly- to fully-shaded garden. Just 18 inches tall, it bears lush, finely-cut foliage of rich green, each frond marked with a central stem of bright crimson and silvery markings. The effect in a dark corner of the garden is quite dramatic!

Easy to grow, this fern needs only moist, well-drained, acidic soil. Over time it forms substantial colonies, increasing the color show with each passing year! And although its weeping habit makes it look very delicate, it's one tough customer, withstanding poor weather and soil conditions beautifully.

Space these plants about 18 inches apart in full to partial shade.
